GUEST,Peter Anachronistic Music in Movies (91* d) RE: Anachronistic Music in Movies 26 Feb 20


"Mind you, I am the kind of bloke that shouts at the telly when a period drama uses the wrong kind of steam train - which is just about every time. "

I don't usually notice that although a British Railways logo in a programme set in the 1890s did stand out as did a British Rail double arrow in what was meant to be occupied Poland.

SWMBO always spots zip fasteners on period dresses.

The music in Pride and Prejudice was good though. I don't usually spot specific tunes but it annoys me when the whole style is out for the period. When you get a waltz danced in the seventeenth century it is time to switch off, calm down and put on some music of your own.
